Article Contest Reversal Chart Pattern Logic Head Inverse Shoulder Live Example
Hello, my dear friends and the fellow community members.
In the article of the month of March, we learned about the ascending triangle pattern. There are a lot of chart patterns that we can learn. But I think that we should only focus on the most profitable chart patterns first. So in this month, I have come up with the very famous Head and Shoulder pattern. I got the idea of talking about Head and Shoulder pattern because I saw it emerging in many of the charts these days and it is very easy to visualize this pattern in the charts. I have included a few charts of April 2018 where this pattern had emerged.
1. ABOUT THE HEAD AND SHOULDER PATTERN
A few facts about the Head and Shoulder pattern:
  • It is considered as the reversal pattern.
  • It has 4 necessary ingredients.
  1. The first shoulder,
  2. The head
  3. The second shoulder
  4. The neckline
  • Both shoulders should have almost the same height(although not necessary).

Tорговая стратегия рэнко в Visual Jforex 4/28
Posted 17 Apr. by AnddreyDr Ranking
Trading Eurjpy Renko

В предыдущей своей статье я затронул тему графиков Рэнко. Данный тип графиков исключает фактор времени и представляет собой последовательность «кирпичиков» равного размера. В данной статье попробуем оценить результативность торговли с использованием графиков Рэнко на примере предложенной ниже стратегии.


Торговая идея

В данном случае не будем придумывать сложных алгоритмов, а будем просто следовать за ценой. Т.е. если нарисовался «кирпичик» другого цвета, то встаем в его сторону с трейлинг стопом в размере противоположного «кирпичика», тейк профит использовать не будем.


Перед тем как использовать любую торговую стратегию, ее необходимо каким-то образом протестировать. Сделать это можно двумя способами, либо вручную, что весьма рутинно и есть большая вероятность ошибиться, либо с помощью торгового робота, чем мы и займемся.


Торговый робот

Для написания торгового робота будет использовать визуальный конструктор стратегий Visual JForex. Общий вид робота представлен на рисунке ниже.

Запускаться торговый робот будет по каждому тику нужного нам инструмента, что достигается путем фильтрации всех тиков логическим блоком «if». Торговый робот состоит из четыре

Carry Trades, Correlation and Margin Control 12/28

Carry Trade Money Management Successful Trading Article Contest; Jforex; Margin Control Risk Minimisation Efficient Portfolio
Economic basis
As Central Banks slowly start to play on the piano of interest rates, interest rate differentials in different currencies become, again, attractive for carry traders.
A carry trade in its basic structure involves a credit in low yielding currency and the investment of this credit amount in a high yielding currency.
A naïve carry trade simply follows the rate differentials. A more sophisticated carry trade looks for reason and shelter. For example a special country has a well-defined exchange-rate-policy, meaning, that the exchange-rate for its domestic money vis a vis another country or a set (basket) of countries shall deviate only xy basispoints from a defined target rate.
For achieving such a goal Centralbanks apply interest rate policy. Historical examples are the European Currency Unit (the predecessor of the EURO) or the long-term peg of the Swedish Krona to a basket of currencies.
A current example are the efforts by the Swiss Centralbank trying to prevent further appreciations of the Swiss Frank, by dictating even negative interest rates.
The trade
Foreign Exchange contracts are a simple way to effect such an “Interest Rate Arbitrage”. Instead of exch…

How to Profit from Carry Trades 7/28
Posted 13 Apr. by willy29 Ranking
Carry Trade Long Term Swaps Swing Trading Carry Trading Rollover Overnight Rate
Hello everyone, I am a new member of the great Dukascopy community and this will be my first of many articles. I feel like this is the perfect subject to start with because the explanation of a carry trade brings us back to the very basic fundamentals of forex trading. So here we go!
Definition of a carry trade:
A carry trade consists of borrowing money in a currency with low interest rates and investing the funds in another currency with higher interest rates.
This is a pretty straightforward definition, but let's use an example to put this information into context. If the interest rate of the European Central Bank is 0% while the US Federal Reserve is 1,75%, the interest rate spread would be 1,75% (1,75% - 0%). In this example, we would borrow Euro to invest in USD therefore the net yield of the carry trade would be a gain of 1.75% or 1,750$ a year for 1 lot traded.
How does this apply to trading?
Borrowing and investing in different countries would be way too complicated for an individual to do alone. This is why we do business with brokers. They can give us access to trade almost all the currencies in the world. As we know the FX market operates in pair, meaning that if you inv…

Fibonacci Analysis - Decoding the Secret Invisible Price Grid 8/28
Posted 12 Apr. by MrPotter Ranking
Technical analysis Forex Article Article Contest Prediction Fibonacci Crash Time Analysis
Just think...
What if there really was a secret to trading? A secret code that every market abided by, in every time frame from 5 seconds to 5 years? What if the same analysis could be used to identify a short 1 minute swing in the EUR/USD and to identify the next major global financial meltdown, like the one that started in 2007? I suggest that there may well be...and that it comes from a complex set of mathematical laws that have been studied by ancient mathematicians for thousands of years, and have governed the universe for millions of years. I'm talking about Fibonacci Analysis. Not just your simple Fibo retracement, something much more complicated...and much more accurate.
What is Fibonacci?
In 1170, nearly 1000 years ago, a child was born in Pisa, Italy. He grew up to be one of the most important mathematicians of all time. His name: Leonardo Fibonacci. He is famed for his research into what is now known as the Fibonacci sequence: a sequence of numbers where each number is derived by adding together the two numbers proceeding it, for example:
1 , 1 , 2 , 3 , 5 , 8 , 13 , 21 , 34 , 55 , 89 , 144 , 233 . . . .
(1 + 1 = 2, 2 + 1 = 3, 3 + 2 = 5, 5 + 3 = 8 and so on...)

EUR Appreciation Driven by Fundamentals or a Speculation? 5/28

Qe Inflation Current Account Euro Rise Public Debt
GOOD MORNING ALL !!!
I regularly trade on EUR/USD so I have decided to analyse fundamental factors for the growth of EUR last year. As this year, from the last three months EUR/USD trending sideways so my attempts is to find out which side it may break.
I have deliberately mentioned speculation in the title of my article, as in 2017 on many occasion there were several discussions about the topic that, European Central Bank may end quantitative easing programme as scheduled in December 2017. When I look back in history, Eur's downfall started in 2008 as Eurozone and world witnessed a recession. Falling growth, rising unemployment rate, falling inflation so ECB started Quantitative Easing means a bond buying programme in 2015, to raise money supply in the system and lowered interest rates to negative. Rising money supply makes loan cheaper and so tends businesses and people to spend more on various fronts. Like investments in business expansion may grow up which in turn leads to rising employment and economic growth.
Disclaimer : Made by me from data source on ECB website.
Last year we have witnessed a low of 1.034 in EUR/USD and from there it has grown almost 2000 pips and this year…

на удачу ничего не выйдет, нужен систематический подход 13/28

Итого (для тех кто полениться читать до конца):
В космос полететь хотят миллионы, готовят тысячи, а полетят единицы. Это к тому что труд в форексе не легкий и на удачу выиграть НЕ возможно. В статье показываются факты и математически доказывается, что не возможно выиграть без систематики или так называемой выработанной модели поведения.
Предисловие
С первого взгляда все в форексе просто, ставка, все два направления вверх или вниз. Они в простонародии или по умному называются сделки Buy (то есть Вы предпологаете движение цены вверх) или Sell (соответственно движение цены вниз). Для меня слово купить Buy и продать Sell не совсем раскрывают смысл действия. Первое время я долго придумывал ассоциации, как же запонить какое направление есть что. Ведь по сути покупаем мы в обоих случаях, вне зависимости от направления движения. Рассмотрим валютную пару Евро-доллар, соответсвенно при росте цены, дорожает Евро. Другими словами, при цене 1.25, за 1 Евро можно купить 1.25 Доллара (Евро дороже доллара), при цене 0.9, за 1 Евро можно купить 0.9 Доллара (Доллар дороже Евро). При росте цены с 1.25 до 1.50, необходимо выставить ордер на покупку Buy. Потому что допустим у вас был 1 000 Евро, Вы м…

How to Control Emotions in Forex Trading 18/28
Posted 9 Apr. by marcellogyn Ranking
Trading Forex Emotions How To Trade
Emotions in Forex trading generate uncertainty that gradually grows into fear and mood of panic. Yielding to the effects of momentary impulses, the trader undertakes a series of unreasoned actions that manifest in the following:
  • Opening of unreasonable transactions;
  • Premature fixation of profit;
  • Dragging of stop losses;
  • Non-compliance with money management.

The consequences of such behavior are manifest in the loss of a deposit due to erroneous management of trading process caused not by the absence of knowledge and skills but rather by the inability to control himself.
REASONS FOR OCCURRENCEIt is possible to learn emotions management in Forex trading only when you understand the nature of their occurrence. Several factors that force a person to yield to uncontrolled impulses can be singled out.
  1. The absence of final satisfaction - chemical reactions that occur in the body after discharge of adrenaline produce narcotic influence that can not satisfy.
  2. Addiction - continuous yielding to the influence accompanied by the discharge of dopamine into blood, a person becomes addicted to this condition.

The Pivot Point - Trading Strategy 2/28
Posted 5 Apr. by rajwinder Ranking
Forex Strategy Support Resistance Pivot
Hello Community Members, this is my very first article. So, I want to start with the basic strategy which is the base of the Forex trading. The following pivot point trading strategy has been around for a long time. It was originally used by floor traders. This was a nice and easy way for floor traders to have an idea of where the market was going during the course of the day using just a few basic calculations. The pivot point is defined as the level at which the market direction changes for the day. Using some simple math and the previous day's high, low and closing prices, a series of points are set. These points can be critical support and resistance levels. The pivot level, support and resistance levels calculated from those prices are collectively known as pivot levels.
The Pivot is the point around which market moves

Every day, the market you are following has an open, high, low and closing price for the day (some markets, such as the Forex market, are open 24 hours, but we generally use midnight GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) as the open and close time). This information basically contains all the data you need to use pivot points. The reason pivot points are so popular is tha…

Tип графика исключающий фактор времени 10/28
Posted 5 Apr. by AnddreyDr Ranking
Eurjpy Trading Idea Renko

Целью любого трейдера является получение прибыли, которая определяется количеством пройденных в нужном направлении пунктов. Именно пункты, а не время, по моему мнению, являются главной целью любого трейдера. Несмотря на это, большинство трейдеров используют в торговле привычные графики изменения цены в виде японских свечей. Однако, существует график, на котором изменение цены представлено без учета времени и называется он график Рэнко. Именно об этом типе графика и пойдет речь в данной статье.


Что представляет собой график Рэнко?

График Рэнко был придуман японскими трейдерами много лет назад. Рэнко в переводе с японского означает «кирпич». Именно так, в виде кирпичиков, и выглядит график Рэнко (Рис.1). Каждый новый кирпичик рисуется после того как цена пройдет заданное расстояние, например 10 пунктов. Таким образом, фактор времени полностью исключен и новый «кирпичик» может быть нарисован как за одну минуту, так и за один день.


Рис. 1 График Рэнко

Главная особенность графиков Рэнко состоит в фильтрации шумов и визуальной привлекательности. На привычных графиках в виде японских свечей цена может очень сильно колебаться, двигаясь при этом в некотором направлении, что несколько усложн

Posted 1 Apr. by rashadali Ranking
Forex Strategy Article Contest Psychology Lose Mistakes
All traders meet disbelief on their strategy when they keep losing. In most of the cases traders will shift to other strategies. I also did the same. After sometime I understood that it is not about strategies but about psychology. Of course there is no strategy that gives 100% true signals. They give around 60-80% true signals which are more than enough. But in spite of these percentages we keep losing. The reason for these failures is character and psychology. In this article I will share my mistakes/reasons that make me lose. I reflected my trading method in my article one currency master trading.
Wish to catch the trend earlier
By analyzing my trend history I found that I don’t wait completion of all criteria. At the end I lose.
My trading method says that trend end is near when ADX falls and MACD shows divergence. But for us to be able to sell here in chart, 21 EMA and price have to be below 144 EMA. I saw ADX and MACD signals and decided not to wait EMA signal and lost money two times.
Losing focus and deviation from method
When I am concentrated in one direction I can lose focus and can’t see signal.
Price reached the highest point. It touched resistance level and I had a…
